Week 2 of the 2014 NFL preseason opens up on Thursday night with the Jacksonville Jaguars and star rookie QB Blake Bortles going against the Monster's of the Midway in the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. The game is the debut of ESPN' Monday night football for the exhibition season and the matchup starts at 8 pm ET on ESPN and the WatchESPN website and will give Bortles another chance to play against a pro defense after making his debut in Week 1.
The Bears have an offense headlined by quarterback Jay Cutler, running back Matt Forte and receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
On the injury report, Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny won't play at Chicago on Thursday night because of a bruised biceps. Second-year player Nate Stupar is expected to start in Posluszny's place against the Bears.
Jags starting running back Toby Gerhart will look to see his first live game action after missing nearly two weeks with a hip flexor injury.
Jags wide receiver Cecil Shorts is unlikely to play this week after injuring his hamstring in practice.
Bears tackle Jordan Mills could be out Thursday as he recovers from offseason surgery in January on a fractured metatarsal in his left foot.
Both teams are fairly healthy coming into this matchup, and they hope to leave it as such.
